We did the Earnslaw trip after our day trip was cancelled due to weather. We decided to head over and enjoy the BBQ lunch. It was a spectacular day and the BBQ lunch was one of the best we have ever had. A huge selection of excellent quality meat. Lots of salads and a very good dessert bar. The staff were very helpful and the trip was very much worth what we paid for it. Would 100% recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful day despite he miserable weather. The boat trip was scenic, the show was a bit of fun to watch and the lunch was delicious.
Watching the dogs reactions to the sheep movements was the best part of the show and the bbq meats the best part of lunch.
I’m not sure how to do it but some people booked a bay window table. I would recommend doing this for the awesome view

Our best experience in Queenstown was cruising the Lake at sunset on the TSS Earnslaw and then having a bountiful and delicious dinner with a buffet of BBQ meats, salads, and desserts at the sheep farm. By far, not a farm, but a modern restaurant on a sheep ranch barn. Though some reviewers say the price is high, the value is there for the fun (piano musician, sing-a-long) on the ship, the excellently prepared food for dinner and the sheep shearing demonstration. It was a totally unique and enjoyable experience.

For those looking for a scenic view and experience must do either lunch or dinner cruise. Meals are in farm with sheep show experience.

Cruise is as old as 1912 but we'll maintained. One may experience steam engine from close.
